The future of neuroscience needs an innovative outlook on the study of brain by scientists coming from various disciplines and traditions. The field of Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) is a meeting point for researchers and scientists in psychology, biology, and education. Unlike the one-way information sharing from psychology to education as in educational psychology or from neuroscience to education as in educational neuroscience, MBE is credited with its two-way flow of information between the three fields. The transdisciplinary initiatives between neuroscience, psychology, and education, as in the case of MBE, offer an increased optimism not only for the treatment of biological and neurological diseases but also for the realization of optimal outcomes in effective learning and positive development.
